We cut the cord several years ago and where doing fine until the TV stations in my area moved frequencies and we had to rescan, No matter what did we could not get back one of the national channels, talking with their engineers they suggested we may need to get a longer range antenna.
Bought this antenna for a neighbor who was suffering the same and Presto, everything came back plus more, made the change ourself today, easy assembly, super easy installation, supports 5 TV's (all on at once!) rescan and good to go. Nice Product, well worth the money.
Using this antenna I am receiving with excellent reception all OTA stations available in my area. Although I have not had to adjust the direction of my antenna it is very helpful to have the ability to do that from inside the house rather that having to climb a ladder and make a manual adjustment. This antenna is attached to an OTA DVR device that shows signal strength. That device shows I have the strongest available signal on all available OTA stations.
I received the antenna and saved the box. I wasn’t sure I’d like it based on some of the reviews. I’m glad I waited and tried it for myself. I first of all assembled the antenna and hooked it up inside of my house right next to the TV and I received 24 stations. Already better than the cheap antenna that that I bought locally which only received 4 stations depending on the weather. Granted that antenna was $17.
So I debated if I wanted to put it in the attic or outside of the house. that an outside would be better, so I went outside and figured out a good place to mount it on a facia board. I drilled a hole through the wall and ran the coaxial cable that came with the antenna. I added a ground to the antenna per the antenna man, and when I finally hooked up the coaxial cable to the TV and did the auto program, I was stunned to find 56 channels coming in! Some signals are broadcast in less than Hd signal, but were all a solid signal and Did not get that digital pixelation drop out. I do not have a signal amplifier on but I’m thinking about adding one in. I did add in the supplied splitter and sent signals to two other TVs. They all get excellent pictures and to my amazement, my tv in my downstairs even received some additional channels that the upstairs tv did not. I suspect that tuner is more sensitive. I’m not an expert installer. I think I need a taller pole because if I were to rotate the antenna now it may hit the roof, but with this many tv stations, I may just leave well enough alone. Incidentally, I figured out how to delete those stations I don’t want so it is almost better than having cable tv. For reference, I’m about 20 miles out of a decent sized city in Oregon. In Los Angeles, I used to get over 200 channels over the air but I watched about 10 of them.
Hope this review helps you all enjoy the free tv signals that are out there. The instructions are not so clear and the pieces do face certain ways. It is easy enough to put thing backwards. I had to correct some wing nuts and the two “tail feather” attachments. I had mine pointing the wrong easement I irate started assembling.
I'm going to place a second one on my roof now because I've tripled my available channels!
We finally cut the cord... this antenna is the greatest, easy to install, quick to install, and requires little technical understanding.
It's even better than I expected.
Thank you for your feedback
I set it up for a friend on a fixed income who was being overcharged for a cable service that uses a dish to get the signal and sends out more advertisements to the client than genuine programs. I persuaded her to switch to an OTA (over-the-air) antenna, which I have used for nearly 25 years without paying a monthly cable subscription. Sure, she'll still get advertising, but she won't have to spend a fortune for them. She now has access to more than 70 local channels, compared to only three with her old supplier. To say the least, a satisfied customer. Her freshly obtained antenna channels are easily over 100 miles away in some cases. The house is located in a rural part of North Carolina.
